"Summer is gone. So long awaited, and then quickly past. This is the essential melancholy of autumn - that we mourn the approaching loss of the sun's warmth and light.
Even so, fall has always been my favorite season. Bike rides and walks with my dog Rupp are quieter now, and often softly grey. Early morning mists sift down through the trees to drizzle diamond droplets onto grass stems. Shards of light pierce the clouds as fog horns boom in the silent, heavy air. This season of transition has many moods... it's clear, cold nights paint the trees brilliant hues, then it's stromy turbulence may strip these leaves in a single afternoon. But with this jewellry collection, I want to express the gentle grey neutrals of early mornings when vapour obscure distant details and, for a moment, the sun breaks through to create jewels of bright prisms all around."
The name Hematite is derived from the Greek word for blood (haima). It can sometimes be red in colour as well as metallic grey. Hematite is the mineral form of iron-oxide and this link with iron has led to its reputation as a stone which strengthens the will and bestows vitality. Its popularity in jewellery reached a peak in the Victorian era
